Archaeological exploration could begin by mid-November to determine if remains of those once buried at a Germantown Potter’s Field lie beneath the site of the Philadelphia Housing Authority’s Queen Lane project.
A team of archaeologists and historic preservation experts will be at the now-empty Queen Lane Apartments within weeks to more closely study areas where a radar survey showed underground anomalies. Their findings will likely be the key factor determining when the existing apartment tower would come down and what, if anything, PHA can rebuild at the site.
Local representatives of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development hosted an update meeting Thursday at their Center City offices, as part of an ongoing federally-mandated historic preservation assessment and review.
